Before reading the article below, can you tell which palette was used on which eye, ruby or pink gradation? Which one you prefer, right eye or left eye?
It's interesting and also necessary to do comparisons for similar eyeshadow palettes, in terms of swatches or EOTD. It will be easier to visualize the differences between similar palettes and also convenient for gals who are mind-struggling with choosing them.
There always a pink palette for most of the Lunasol collection. Her we are going to compare two pink tone eyeshadow palette Geminate eye 05 Ruby and Blooming eye 01 pink gradation.
Review of Ruby palette is here.
Comparison between Ruby and Nars Kuala Lumper is here.
Detailed swatches of Pink Gradation is here.
In general, ruby looks more intense and more pigmented than pink gradation.
Compare the darkest eyeliner color:
Ruby is burgundy red with subtle shimmering, while pink gradation is warm brown with tiny glitter.
The main color of pink gradation is shimmery soft light pink, and ruby has darker luminous pink.
Ruby has a shinning light pink glittery center color while pink gradation does have.
To show how different these two palettes look on eyes, we tried two different palettes on left and right eyes at the same time.
What we use for the EOTD:
- Face: Chantecaille compact makeup
- Mascara: Majolica Majorica
- Eye Primer: Too faced Shadow Insurance (TFSI)
- Makeup Brushes:
- M.A.C #217, #239
- MakeUpShow (MUS) H06, H10, H13
EOTD: Lunasol Geminate Eyes 05 Ruby
Left eye: Ruby VS. Right eye: Pink gradation
The difference is not very obvious but still enough to tell, ruby is more vivid and pink gradation is more elegant. If ruby can be described as a hot topical beach party girl, pink gradation will be the girl next door.....
Pink gradation is more suitable for fair skin than darker skin, if you want a natural daily look, just go for it!
As we asked in the beginning of this article, which one YOU prefer, left or right??
